Crawfish Corn Chowder

My beloved best friend Lea-Lea gave me this one.  Her mommy makes it all the time and I think of the two of them often while cookin this one up.   Love to you both!

1 or 2 pkg crawfish tails
1/2 stick margarine (never have in my house)
1 (8oz) block cream cheese
1 cups half and half (1 pint)
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 cans cream of potato soup
2 tbls crab oil
1/2 bunch of green onions

Melt margarine, cream cheese, & half and half together on low heat.  Stir continuously.  Add cream of mushroom and potato soups.  Once blended, in a separate saucepan bring to boil the crawfish tails & crab oil in water.  Drain, but don't rinse the crawfish.  Add crawfish to soup mixture along with the corn & simmer 20 min on low/med heat.

*Also forgot to mention you can use shrimp too and it's just as good.

I love this recipe, Sandy made it for us one night when we came over for dinner except she used shrimp. Still very awesome! Jesse is begging me to make it!
